Florida Literature, A Natural Paradox

The tropical and subtropical landscapes of Florida have inspired writers for centuries, but the literature of Florida articulates a complicated relationship to nature. This lecture provides an overview of literary history in Florida and calls particularly on the poets to name the experiences and render legible the beauty of this paradoxical state. Dr. Laura Runge, Professors of English and Director of Graduate Studies at the University of South Florida, examines this topic.
